Health Benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon

Posted by on 11/12/2017 to Ceylon True Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a very powerful herb that has been in existence for eons of years. Its roots date back to the early Egyptian lifestyle where it was used for medicinal purposes. For those of you who don’t know much about cinnamon, it’s wise to understand that it exists in two forms namely Ceylon and Cassia cinnamon. Ceylon cinnamon is harvested from evergreen trees found in Sri Lanka, a region that was formerly known as Ceylon. This particular herb is recognized for its characteristic sweet taste and delicate flavor as compared to Cassia cinnamon which is quite bitter and less valuable.

Apart from the difference in color, taste, and texture, Ceylon cinnamon is recognized for its low coumarin level that makes it safe for consumption without having to seek a doctor’s advice. On the other hand, cassia cinnamon contains undesirable levels of coumarin that is known to contain toxic chemicals that can damage your liver. In this post, we will not cover cinnamon in general but we will go deeper and highlight the health benefits of Ceylon cinnamon in particular.

Fights diabetes

Did you know that Ceylon cinnamon contains vital components that increase the blood’s ability to eliminate excess glucose from the bloodstream? Now listen, according to studies published in Nutrition Research, Ceylon cinnamon contains anti-diabetic effects that increase insulin receptor sensitivity, balance blood sugar levels as well as cater for other conditions like metabolic syndrome and weight gain.

Protects your heart

Another health benefit of Ceylon cinnamon is the ability to reduce common risks that cause heart problems. This herb contains essential components that work together to reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides while allowing HDL “good” cholesterol to remain stable within the body. In addition to that, Ceylon cinnamon is known for its ability to reduce bleeding (through helping the body form fast blood clots) and increase blood circulation which later reduces high blood pressure.

Lowers cancer risks

You all know that cancer is a very dangerous disease. Now one way of reducing its risks is through introducing Ceylon cinnamon into your daily diet. According to studies, this powerful herb is known to reduce the growth of cancerous cells as well as reduce risks of blood vessels forming in common brain tumors. Ceylon cinnamon has strong antioxidant abilities that make it a useful supplement in the fight against common cancers such as tumor and cancer of the colon.

Helps maintain dental health

Due to its low coumarin level, Ceylon cinnamon is recognized for its ability to remove bacteria living within the mouth. Rich in essential oils, Ceylon cinnamon works well as a natural anti-bacterial mouthwash to fight common oral problems such as bad breath, tooth decay, and cavities.

Aids in treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s symptoms

Did you know that Alzheimer and Parkinson’s diseases are incurable? Did you also know that these two neurological conditions can be cured as soon as early symptoms are detected? Well, one way of managing this condition is through adding Ceylon cinnamon in your daily diet. According to studies, Ceylon cinnamon has the capacity to help neurons and improve the motor function of most patients suffering from either of these two conditions.

Help reduce both systemic and specific inflammation

For most people living in the Western world, systemic inflammation is one prominent problem that has caused chronic diseases. By adding Ceylon cinnamon to your daily regime, this condition (systemic inflammation) will be dealt with and reduced significantly. On the other hand, specific inflammation—which is the cause of certain pains such as headache, cramps and arthritis pain—can also be reduced by Ceylon cinnamon as it boosts circulation of blood throughout the body as well as the joints (in case of arthritis patients).

Helps manage PCOS

Another health benefit of Ceylon cinnamon is the ability to contain the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) found in most women. Ceylon cinnamon helps in containing the problem of insulin resistance in most women suffering from PCOS.

Maintains heavy menstrual bleeding

Another health benefit of Ceylon cinnamon is that it helps in containing heavy menstrual bleeding in women suffering from common conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and menorrhagia. The reason why Ceylon cinnamon is highly regarded as a major cure for this condition is due to its high anti-clotting properties.

Treats digestive disorder

I believe you’ve faced a digestive disorder before right? Although there are many ways of managing this condition, one natural way of containing this problem is through adding cinnamon to your daily meals. How does it work? Ceylon cinnamon contains essential oils that stimulate body fluids (such as saliva and gastric acid) which in return aids in digestion and nutrient absorption. For those people suffering from indigestion when consuming acidic foods, sprinkling a little Ceylon cinnamon to your food will ensure that such problems are managed with ease.

Aids in fight against fungal infections

Another important health benefit of Ceylon cinnamon is the fight against bacterial and fungal infections. How does it do that? Ceylon cinnamon contains Cinnamaldehyde which is its main component that aids in the fight against fungi, Salmonella and Listeria.   

Bottom line

Finally, as we conclude, let me state that Cinnamon exists in two forms that include Ceylon and cassia cinnamon. While cassia cinnamon is largely available in most stores, Ceylon cinnamon (which is the original cinnamon) is scarcely available meaning customers should check keenly to avoid purchasing cassia instead of Ceylon cinnamon. When it comes to consumption, users have the option of using Ceylon cinnamon in ground powder, capsules, sticks or bark oil form. With that being said, I believe that you will now consider Ceylon cinnamon as a natural remedy for the cure against common illnesses, viruses, and infections.
